Fish and Chips Quick and Easy

Since I talked about frying earlier this week thought I would include a quick easy recipe anyone can do. The correct temperature is the key as it keeps the fish from absorbing oil and makes it light and crisp.

Don't have bread crumbs? Use prepackaged panko, that's what I do.

Good fish substitutes would be red fish, black drum, striped bass, or pollock.

You'll find a link at the end for more free recipes, (not just seafood), so check it out.

Ingredients :

1 quart vegetable oil for frying

1 pound red snapper fillets

1 egg, beaten

1/2 cup dry bread crumbs


In a large heavy skillet, heat oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Dip fillets into beaten egg and dredge in bread crumbs.

Gently slide fish into hot oil and fry until golden brown. Drain briefly on paper towels. Serve hot.
